Welcome to the August edition of the Storage magazine eNewsletter. I have spent an unhealthy chunk of the Summer upgrading my home office setup, and having finally made the step up to Windows 10 I decided it was also time to ‘practice what I preach’ in terms of data protection, and implement a half-decent (albeit small-scale) backup process. The first step was to look at the breadth of data currently stored in various locations and decide some priorities: what could I simply not afford to lose, what was important but ‘not the end of the world’, and what was I storing for no very good reason?

This proved an illuminating exercise as I realised just how much data I was keeping - in some cases for ten years or longer - that I almost certainly would never need to access again. With my ‘better safe than sorry’ hat on, I duly archived enough work and personal files to almost fill a 160GB external SSD, and then set about creating regular backups (daily to external HDD, weekly to cloud) for the data that remained. Have I done enough? Time will tell!
